As background I am trying to keep an open mind about learning ; there will be enough about theory around BETT. I still think design science is interesting as a route towards quality and systems but this is a bit stuck in my conversations with JD. We remain the top YouTube search result for "design science" and DJ. But still limited response so JD usually moves the conversation back to the beginning. This could change if the same ideas crop up somewhere else. In theory any DJ could and should be a design science DJ.
So main thing is to work on video as a form of communication and come back to others later. Radio 1 Academy was in Exeter earlier this year and they talk about visual radio. Maybe this is a low level of production so I am not sure where the levels are. What sort of kit could get similar results from the Phoenix building ? ( not sure what was in the large van parked outside)
Another thing I notice is that on social media there is a lot of video on Facebook or Google hangouts or similar that is apparently cheap to produce but is making some impression on the assumed YouTube video claim to be a starting point. Not sure how this will work out, maybe the whole scene expands and there is still a subscription model as part of this.
So various directions to test. I have got a new desktop with Windows 10 and the latest Premiere Elements ( previously Windows 7 and about four releases back) so there is a short gap while I learn the differences and then it should be a bit better. Seems to cope with multiple tracks so edit is more possible.
The examples below are to show how different styles can work. I think social media is suited to quite a casual approach but there seems to be a trend towards more formal styles as well. Not sure how to navigate around this. Could be discussion about how conversation works, or some reliable resource on another production level.
This one as had a lot of views ( for me anyway compared to others ) mostly because of the content. No external mic so sound is not ideal. Handheld camera so wobbly, but it works overall on some level
This one part of a day out from Phonic Studio to the library next door. Chat in cafe over a coffee is still rare, could happen at conferences but they tend to be formal.
One from BETT last year, this worked ok. Why not just record as part of a trade show visit or anywhere else?
